The lap pool will sit adjacent to the rear verandah. The three floors above accommodate 32 bed-cum-sitting rooms, each at least 40 sq m in size and a generous bathroom. Those at the rear have balconies, while some at the front have outdoor decks. All rooms have Jacuzzis and will meet five-star standards.
